Ty Segall
Ty Segall
THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. And it's fully loaded with everything that Ty Segall (and you and me) are gonna need in the world to come. Sticking his hand deeper into the machines all around him, Ty is reaching ever further to the outer limits of inner space orbited throughout Twins and Sleeper. And now more than ever, the chunks of the world that came before are like asteroids formed in his image, picking up speed. Still fighting the power with all the energy that a determined mind-patriot can conjure, Ty's a fighter who loves, a surfer, a spaceman, and yeah, a casualty – like you, he'll never be free. But unlike you, he knows it – and when he goes down and his head cracks in two, out pour the multi-colored manias that make up Manipulator. Sour sweet declarations featuring freaks and creeps alike: "The Singer," "The Faker," "Mister Main," "Susie Thumb," the "Connection Man," and "The Crawler," to name but a mutant fistful.

To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions, Ty kept working, kept writing, laying down more tracks than ever. New musical expressions pop and surprise relentlessly throughout all the knockout tunes of Manipulator which feature Ty's helium cooled vocals, sounding more powerful and dynamic than ever, and many sounds in the mix, but most of all, SO many guitars! Strangled-neck solos recalling the good old days down by the river with Neil, numbed-and-unplugged discursions, three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key places, waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones – and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus, washing everything away, fusing the blackness of Sabbath with the grime and grab-ass of the Stooges and the sweet swinging tones of the Stones. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There's so little time, and a LOT to say.
Kevin Morby
Kevin Morby
Still Life is the second solo album from Kevin Morby. The namesake of the record is an art piece by Maynard Monrow entitled "Still Life with the Rejects from the Land of Misfit Toys."

The album's title has several meanings. On the surface, it refers to Morby's change in lifestyle from moving to Los Angeles from New York in August of 2013.

But he also admits that the title is ironic. The songs from Still Life were written during yet another period of tour and travel for Morby, as he spent most all of 2013 on the road with Woods (whom Morby parted ways with amicably last year), The Babies, who are currently on hiatus and as a solo artist.

The album reflects both this time in transit and the quiet confines of his new home in Montecito Heights. Scenes of performers, audience expectations and the paradoxical confines of a roving individual perpetually caught in a crowd percolate the songs, notably in "The Jester, The Tramp, The Acrobat," and "Parade." (Morby calls the latter an elegy of sorts for one of his major influences, Lou Reed). Violent fates, wrestling with destiny and the nature of death creep into songs like "The Ballad of Arlo Jones," "Bloodsucker" and "Amen". Even Morby's more obvious love songs like "All of My Life," "Drowning" and "Our Moon" are highly bittersweet; the characters in these songs seem to never quite find each other, but perhaps they find themselves.

As with Harlem River, Still Life is once again produced by Rob Barbato (Cass McCombs, Darker My Love) who adds his signature guitar and bass playing to the album. The album was engineered and mixed by Drew Fischer, who also worked on Harlem River and the Babies second full length album Our House on the Hill and recorded between March and June of 2014 at Barbato and Fischers new Burbank Recording Studio, Comp'ny.

Multi-instrumentalist Will Canzoneri (Cate Le Bon, Cass McCombs, Jessica Pratt), who also performed live with Morby on previous tours and who was a contributor on Harlem River, contributes piano and organ to the album. The album also features a prominent horn section on "Parade" and "Amen".

While Morby called his solo debut Harlem River a love letter to New York City, the city hasn't faded as a muse (readily evident in the eerie twisting journey of "Dancer"). This makes sense. Morby says he always interpreted the "land of misfit toys" in the album's namesake piece to be that of New York.
King Tuff

King Tuff Black Moon Spell
September 23, 2014
Sub Pop Records
King Tuff's new record is called Black Moon Spell.
It was produced and recorded by Bobby Harlow at Studio B in Los Angeles, California, in the hot winter of 2014.
No one involved was prepared to make a record, but an invisible hand pushed them to do it. Perhaps it was God or that special someone we all know and love called The Devil.
God and The Devil actually have very similar interests. They both love electric guitars and they both want you to listen to Black Moon Spell and freak the fuck out.
There were many strange occurrences during the recording session- Dracula landlords, flashes of mysterious light, haunted microphones, songs that mixed themselves, demonic vortexes swirling in coffee cups, etc.
Under the Black Moon Spell you may experience euphoria, demented visions, wet dreams, bouts of backwards laughter, and dazed confusion resulting in primordial dancing.
Fire played a very important role in the making of this album. King Tuff loves fire.
For some reason, no one can really explain how the Black Moon Spell came to be. It just appeared one day and demanded heavy rock music and meatball subs.
Backwards messages may be found on this record.
Los Angeles, full of its screaming coyotes and creeping helicopters, surely slathered its sexy, twisted, hairy, polluted spirit all over Black Moon Spell. The Sunset Strip shat itself when it heard all these guitar solos.
A lot of people always ask King Tuff when he's gonna put out a new record. The answer is September 23, 2014. Can you feel the Black Moon Spell creeping up the back of yr neck yet? King Tuff would prefer not to tell you the full story of making this record because its long and crazy and you wouldn't believe him anyway. Also, I am King Tuff.
Magic Jake, who played bass and is beautiful like sunshine, would like to take this moment to give you a hug and invite you to a tanning party on a beach of your choice.
Old Gary, who plays drums and has the most glorious cackle, would like to take this moment to crack a cold one with you and invite you to watch the old ballgame with him.
Old Gary was out watching the old ballgame, so a wild critter named Ty Segall played drums on the song "Black Moon Spell". Ty enjoys speaking in a goblin voice in his spare time.
Night fell on Studio B. A Tarot card leapt from the deck and said, "No human judgement is of any value here." King Tuff agreed.Sub Pop first discovered King Tuff curled up in his palace in Vermont. It was basically a shit hut made of moss, mud, and glimmering stones hidden near the graveyard, and it was guarded by beautiful wild bullfrogs with silver fangs andbaseball bats. Punx, Squares, Skaters, Farmers, Bartenders, Grandparents, Stoners, Carpenters, Hobos, Heshers, Babes, Babies, Plumbers, Strippers, Art Teachers, Teenagers, Townies, Moms, Dads, Truck Drivers, and Witches will all love this record. Every song on Black Moon Spell was written without giving a shining fuck about nothing.
Listen to Black Moon Spell, turn yr volume knob up to 666, put yr lover in a 69, and let yr inner grinagog rear it's wicked, unwashed, smiling snake head.
Listen to Black Moon Spell and give yr ears what they've been begging for all year; a heavily weird, heavenly dark, hysterically magical Rock & Roll Sexperience.
ps. the only part of this story that isn't true is the part about the shit hut. I actually was living at my parents house when i was discovered. Love, KT
Mikal Cronin
Mikal Cronin
MCIII is the third album from Californian singer-songwriter Mikal Cronin. Marked by the lush arrangements, stunning melodies, and deeply personal lyrical work for which Cronin is now known, the album is also a deliberate attempt to simply "go big."

Written and recorded over the course of 2014, between long bouts of touring, MCIII finds the Laguna Beach native splitting his latest full-length statement into two distinct halves. On Side A, behold a shimmering tsunami of furious, undeniable pop songs. On Side B, marvel at a beautifully wrought concept record in miniature, built around the radiant retelling of what Cronin calls his "coming-of-age" story: After leaving California to go to school in the Pacific Northwest, he found himself alone and adrift, struggling with debilitating back pain and a dissolving sense of self. "It's about a pivotal moment in my life that changed things, just within a couple of months," he says. "It was a shifting point that sent me on the path to doing what I'm doing right now."

As he did on his self-titled 2011 debut and 2013's MCII, Cronin arranged and played nearly all of the record himself, including the tzouras, a traditional Greek string instrument he heard and subsequently bought while on tour in Athens. There's French horn, saxophone, and trumpet. There are mood-altering crescendos and heartbreaking turns-of-phrase, guitars both gorgeous and pugnacious. No longer satisfied with the sound of "just one string player," Cronin arranged parts for a full string quartet instead.

"It's a continuation of what I've been trying to do up until now, but I'm finding a better way to do it," he says. "I'm finding a more successful way of working those unexpected elements and textures and instruments into a rock record, of exploring that wormhole and mushing everything together harmoniously. I like riding the line between the two," he adds. "I like finding new ways to bring different musical worlds together."
Entrance
ENTRANCE (Thrill Jockey) AKA Guy Blakeslee best known as the frontman of L.A.'s Entrance Band. As a solo act, he has supported Cat Power, Spiritualized, Warpaint, Father John Misty and Interpol over the past 2 years presenting his unique blend of psychedelia, poetic folk, blues and gospel in its stripped down and raw form. Guy just signed a deal with Thrill Jockey & will have an EP coming out in September followed by a full album in Feb 2017.
The Cairo Gang
The Cairo Gang
The Cairo Gang is the songwriting outlet for musician Emmett Kelly from Los Angeles. Throughout its recorded career, The Cairo Gang has appeared live in various formats, including combinations of the massive creative well of the Chicago improvised scene, plus a two-plus years run as the band backing Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Since about 2012, it has made itself known mostly in the basements of Chicago and the greater Midwestern United States as a loud and raw, rock and roll band featuring Kelly's chiming electric 12-string, the sledgehammer drums of Marc Riordan, Ryan Weinstein's frenzied bass-lines, and gorgeous harmonic vocal and instrumental accomaniment of Sam Wagster and Gillian Lisee.. It has been reflective of a certain surrendering to the error and tenuous nature of arrangement, and the wet embrace of catharsis, improvisation, rock and roll and the spirit thereof, however physical or metaphsical.
DINNER
Dinner is Danish producer and singer Anders Rhedin. Dinner leads a nomadic existence, dividing his time between Los Angeles, Copenhagen and Berlin. Dinner recently released his debut album'Psychic Lovers,' on Captured Tracks. This week he shares the video for album standout "Lie." Stream the video over at Noisey.

"Dinner's music is about parties. And women. Late nights and early mornings in strange cities. But mainly it's about magic and the communion with spirits," Dinner says. "It's like sexual Christian rock, really. But with out all the Christianity."

Recorded in Copenhagen and LA, Dinner finished a version of Psychic Lovers after 4 months of intense work but decided to scrap everything and start over. "One morning in LA, as I was meditating in the garden, I saw this mental image of saturated, distorted light. Inside this texture was this emotional longing. And I instantly knew that I had to start over. I had to put this mental image into sound. That this new music would be different from my previous music, somehow." The reworking of the album took an additional 5 months.

Whether the finished album lives up to Dinner's vision only Dinner knows. Musically, the album exists in its own space between the 80's, 90's and the present. The songs are pop songs held together by somewhat idiosyncratic arrangements. Opener "Cool As Ice" sounds like the soundtrack to David Lynch directing Miami Vice with overdriven synthetic strings and an equally eerie and funky slap bass that slowly grow into a pop structure. "Turn Me On" invokes the feeling of Sade recorded on VHS fronted by Klaus Nomi's baryton-possessed ghost, or a warped jingle from The Home Shopping Network. The song "Lie" has distinct Nico-esque undertones and John Cale-ish overtones wrapped in 80's melancholy, while "Wake Up" and "The World" explore inverted 90's Euro-pop. In the words of mix-engineer Filip Nicolic (Poolside), "The whole album sounds like Chimo Bayo produced by Marquis de Sade." An even more concise definition of Dinner comes from label-mate Mac Demarco: "Great face, great body, great tunes."
